. he has to sweep the whole east coast, doesn't he, at the beginning of the night? florida, north carolina and new hampshire, as well? >> he has to sweep all the states that touch the atlantic ocean to have a chance in this race. and i think virginia will tell us a lot. it will tell us if this night ends early for mitt romney. or if we're in for a long night. virginia will tell us that. >> he still has to do well in the midwest. win either ohio or wisconsin. if we give that to president obama, where he's ahead. he's 5 votes short of the 270 electoral votes he needs. all that leaves is nevada, colorado or iowa. the president ahead or tied in all three of the states. >> that's the situation that mitt romney is in. he's got a very narrow path to an electoral college victory. he has to draw an inside straight in this campaign to win it today. he has to do all those things and the path is still narrow to win this. >> matthew dowd, we'll see you tonight. >>> and this year, whether it's tweeting, facebooking or never mind e-mailing, social media has shaped this campaign like never before
